Owners and Trainers FAQs

Do Owners and Trainers receive discounts on hospitality?

We offer a 20% discount on all hospitality packages in our Fairwood Brasserie and Club Restaurant & Lounge to all Owners and Trainers who wish to dine.  Please note that our Club Restaurant & Lounge is for a maximum of 8 per booking, is for 18s and over and operates a strict shirt, jacket and tie policy.

Whilst we retain a number of tables for our Owners and Trainers on general racedays, our restaurants are very popular and we would encourage booking in advance to avoid disappointment.

Please be advised that this does not include feature event days such as Ladies Day or concert days.

I have used my allotted badges, is there a discount for additional guests?

If you wish to invite additional guests we offer a 50% discount on the general admission price for that day/  However, you will need to verify that they are your guest at info@chelmsfordcityracecourse.com

Please be advised that these guests will not receive a complimentary drink voucher.
